It’s time for cascading chrysanthemums at Bellingrath Gardens and Home

WASHINGTON, D.C. – October 30, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Mum’s the word at Bellingrath Gardens and Home in November, when it’s time for the 52nd Annual Fall Outdoor Cascading Chrysanthemums, the nation’s largest outdoor display of the signature blooms of the season.

The Gardens and Home will be festooned with hundreds of colorful, 4-foot-long cascades of chrysanthemums on bridges and balconies, as well as the traditional displays of mums in baskets and containers. Guests will also see columns of mums and bedded plants along the Great Lawn’s dramatic border in the rich fall colors of red, yellow, bronze, lavender and white.

The Fall Outdoor Cascading Chrysanthemums show is the largest outdoor mum display in the nation. The display is set out when the blooms are at their peak in the second and third weeks of November (Nov. 7-21).

Bellingrath’s Horticulture staff works nearly year-round on the cascading mums, which are meticulously cultivated in our greenhouses. The cascades are created when three plants are potted into 5-gallon containers and then placed onto growing racks during the summer months. The mums are sheared every few weeks throughout the growing season in order to create fuller plants.

For details on the Fall Outdoor Cascading Chrysanthemums display, visit our website, www.bellingrath.org, or call (251) 973-2217.

Bellingrath Gardens and Home is operated by the Bellingrath Gardens and Home Foundation, a charitable, not-for-profit organization. Bellingrath Gardens and Home is dedicated to the preservation and enhancement of the 65-acre garden and estate home of Walter and Bessie Bellingrath.
